Early in the morning I took the train to Bratislava,the capital of the country.I booked 2 nights at the hostel for $18 and then I walked to the Old Town to get breakfast.
I climbed the nearby tower of St.Michael's Gate and explored the catacombs of St.Martin's Cathedral.I grabbed a quick lunch and a Kofola and then I headed over to the Bratislava Museum at the Old Town Hall to learn about the history of the city.
In the evening I climbed to Bratislava Castle to get a nice view of the city at night,the entrance was free.I spent some time there and then I headed back to the Old Town to get a taste of Slovakian Beers.
In the ninth day I took the bus to Devin,a borough of Bratislava to see Devin Castle,a local favorite.Part of it was blown up during the Napoleonic Wars,so now it's mostly in ruins.Very beautiful place in the nature though.
At noon I got back to the Old Town,where I visited the Primatial Palace to see its beautiful Hall of Mirrors.It closes at 5PM so it was only a brief visit before I got to a bar to have some slovakian beers.
